Description: The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by owners Rich and Chris Meyer, your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air restaurant and a taste of our extensive menu. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Friday from 11:30 to 3, happy hour from Monday thru Saturday at our courtyard bar from 3-6 (1/2 priced drinks), and dinner Monday thru Friday from 5:30 to 10.

This is a great restaurant to visit while you are in St. John. The food is good and the wait staff is very friendly. When we visit St John, this is one of our go too places to eat. They have the best Key Lime pie ever!!!

Delicious shrimp salad and great margaritas in a great setting. It is a short block and a half walk from the dock. The waitress was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. A nice gift shop with lots of interesting goodies is attached. Wish we had been staying on St. John's because we really wanted to make a return... More

If you're looking for lobster is this about the only place the locals told us to go. Went to celebrate friends 50th. Nice menu selections. It was a little hot the night we were there as you sit towards the back of the restaurant. It's a block or two from the ferry terminal. Great place to go for drinks as... More

Lime Inn was recommended by the bar tender in another establishment as his "go to" place to get a good meal. We went and had a great dinning experience. Food was awesome, service was friendly and attentive, drinks were good and the ambiance was perfect. We would definitely go back. I was our favorite of the 4 dinners we had... More

The full restuarant was not opening until the next week but they do serve meals in the bar area. My husband had the grilled lobster and raved over it. I actually had the philly cheesesteak and it was absolutely delicious. My husband could not resist and at half. We started with the bacon wrapped scallops and they were perfectly grilled.... More

Dinner or lunch, the Lime Inn is always delicious. From the friendly greeting to the friendly good bye you'll enjoy your meal. We has dinner one night and the grilled lobster is the best on the island. Their homemade gazpacho soup is my wife's favorite and their New England clam chowder is among the best I've had anywhere. Top off... More

As others have reviewed I was in St John the end of October (my favorite time to visit) and only the bar area was open. That was not an issue as I sat at the bar and had a wonderful time. The bartender was attentive and accommodating for all who came in that night. It was actually a nice atmosphere... More
